Exciting cultural events

Kulturen mitt i centrum

Skellefteå's new cultural center sits enthroned in central Skellefteå, and is an obvious choice for those interested in culture. Here you will find, among other things, our county theater Västerbottensteatern, which is based in Sara Kulturhus. In Nordanå, the green cultural area with a long history, we find the Skellefteå museum which offers an insight into our local culture. And to tie the bag together with the central culture, Skellefteå Riksteaterförening organizes events at stages both at Nordanåteatern and Sara Kulturhus.

Art that provokes, challenges & represents

Discover art where the diversity of contemporary art is both made visible and discussed. Art that provokes, engages and where you as a spectator can take the step to become a co-creator. You can take part in guided tours, create freely in workshops and try different techniques.

Culture in the entire municipality

The cultural life in Skellefteå doesn't only take place in the city centre, it's also alive and well in the entire municipality.
